White walls with neutral upholstery and a zebra-hide rug
Close [x] Southern Accents Beautiful Homes, Gracious Living, A Sense of Place

Neutral Territory

Viewed by some as anti-colors, caramels, camels, taupes, and browns continue to have a place in home and fabric design. A fitting backdrop for art, antiques, and accessories, neutrals can be very effective when executed well.

This restful Atlanta living room, designed by Betty Burgess, is a study in texture and patina. A linen velvet tuxedo sofa is accented by silk pillows, while the 19th-century French chairs are covered in a simple linen.

Layering a graphic rug over seagrass keeps things interesting, while bits of metallic finishes (on the clock, sconce, and frames) add glamour.
